I have an Acer 5336 Laptop. I wish to connect a video camera to import and edit my video . There is no 1394 socket to connect a firewire cord too so how can this be done as I am told there is no converter...


YES you can !
There are a variety of 1394 to usb adaptors.
You could take a look here

http://www.nextag.com/firewire-adapter-usb/products-html?nxtg=39940a28050c-27CA5CA48C208E1D

there are many other sources and methos too

However the stoc specification for your laptop only lists 512 mb ram
that will be a limiting factor in video edits. It is going to be sloow !

I would consider a large increase in ram if you want to do this task on a regular basis

this model (or at least one of the variations) lists a pcmcia slot and if your is one of those the the card option would be my prefered choice.

Another alternative would be to port the video using a desktop computer and then transfer the file to your laptop for playback

I have a acer aspire 5735z and cannot connect to my new adsl modem, telstra ( internet provider) told me to ring acer, will the acer company tell me i need a new drive and will i have to pay for it??? this...


Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

A distorted sound is coming from my speakers even if i connect speakers


It is a possibility that you are getting feedback from a device that is near by. Possibly a cell phone or other device. I would recommend moving the computer to a different location and removing all electronic devices from beside the computer, then reconnecting speakers.

It is also possible that you have a bad sound card. If that is the case, you will need to purchase another sound card and replace the old one. I have included instructions on how to replace your sound card below:

Here is a site where you can purchase the sound card you may be in need of:
http://www.meritline.com/laptop-sound-card-usb-port---p-39078.aspx?source=nextaghdac

There are other sites such as Ebay where you can also purchase the sound card. The type of sound card you need is a PCMCIA Sound Card for an Acer Laptop.

Here are instructions on how to install a new sound card:
    Installing a PCMCIA Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  1. Step 1 Locate the PCMCIA card slot on your computer. On an Acer laptop, the slot may be either on the left or the right side of the laptop.
  2. Step 2 Remove the PCMCIA card cover by pressing the "Eject" button and pulling the cover out.
  3. Step 3 Insert your PCMCIA sound card with the connectors facing in and the upper label facing up. Some PCMCIA cards will have an arrow to make it easier to orient the card correctly.
  4. Step 4 Press the PCMCIA card gently into place.
  5. Step 5 Windows will recognize the PCMCIA card and search for the needed software.
  6. Step 6 If your sound card came with an installation CD, insert it in the CD slot and follow the instructions to install applications and utilities for use with your new sound card.
    Installing a USB Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  7. Step 1 Turn the computer on.
  8. Step 2 Plug the USB sound card into the appropriate USB plug on your laptop.
  9. Step 3 Wait for the computer to recognize the new USB device.
  10. Step 4 Insert the sound card manufacturer's CD if prompted to do so.
If a sound card is not the issue, then you possibly have circuitry issues on your laptop motherboard. For this issue, you may need to consult a certified technician at your local computer repair shop.

(If you are not a professional or are used to opening your laptop, I would recommend taking it to a local computer repair shop for a certified technician to look at this issue. Do bare in mind if you have a warranty, opening your laptop and not being a certified professional would void any warranty agreement you have with your manufacturer)

No input for i-LINK cable for Sony Camcorder


if your computer does not have an i-Link port (also known as firewire) you would need to purchase a PCMCIA card in order to transfer video to your computer such as this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124014

are the connectors on the camera the same exact size, or is one bigger than the other? If they are NOT the same size go with the kind of card I mentioned above (it's a 6-pin firewire cable). If the connectors are the same size you need to get either a 6-4 pin firewire cable, or get a card that has a 4-pin connector

Firewire


Hi there, I am fairly sure that PCMCIA card will fit in it.

Have a look at this picture.

The slot you looking for is on the top right of the picture, there is a lil button u press in, it will pop out, push it again and it will eject a sort of blank card, this is make sure nothing accidentally gets into the laptop when a card is not in use.

Hope it helps

Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook series suggested PCMCIA TV Tuner Card


Hi, Most brand/models will work for your laptop as long as the correct drivers are installed for the laptop's OS (Vista). One thing noticeable is slight heat build-up on most PCM CIA cards. On the other hand external TV via USB connection tend not to heat as much and does not load nor draw power from the laptop since they have their own power adapters. Both however will have a lower video quality compared to cable directly connected to TV connection. There are a number of models from AverMedia which should work straight out. My experience with Leadtek models has also been satisfactory so far. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back should you need additional information. good luck and kind regards.
